old says it will gradually reduce its commitment to the pact unless europe does more to save it. and to his use president has called a presidential and legislative elections for later in the year he signed the decrees he made his 1st public appearance since being discharged from hospital. in hong kong it appears there's no end in sight to the political crisis of mothers have rallied to show their support for the city's young protesters they accuse the police of using excessive force what a small group of them stormed the city's legislature on monday the government's refusal to shelve the controversial extradition bill has triggered weeks of mass protests most of the peaceful demonstrations are planned for sunday let's cross over to rob brad our correspondent in hong kong really saturday gives everybody an opportunity rob to reflect to remember what's being going on after weeks of social as we said a peaceful political disagreement. here absolutely
4:06 pm
so where we are is the perfect place if you like for reflection we are up in a place called typo it's up in the new territories that separates cow loon and hong kong island from mainland china in fact only a few kilometers from the border with mainland china and we're at a university where they are this saturday afternoon holding a memorial service for low you yet know she was a student who took her own life last week she was a 1st year creative art student at this campus she was only 21 years old tragically she jumped to her death from a building in foundling that's a new town that's not far from here and she did so just before she jumped she scrawled on the wall had basically her last message very poignantly saying no extradition back to china saying that her sacrifice was
4:07 pm
a small sacrifice but it was her way of trying to fulfill the wish of 2000000 people of course 2000000 people came out on that famous march just over a week ago calling for the scrapping of this extradition bill and sadly she is no longer with us are we students have gathered here we're hearing speeches they are singing hymns not. only students from this campus but also fellow protesters from the movement and all around this campus they have put up a poster this is this is a reproduction of her last words that she tragically scrawled on the wall before her death and so that's what's happening here this saturday afternoon but as you said a moment for reflection for everybody that's been involved in this movement very sad moment there and of course i suppose you know the reality is that what one does what next really for not just the students but also demonstrators as a whole across hong kong who are still opposing this extradition law the issue has not gone away. absolutely there is still see the
4:08 pm
anger here resentment that people's voices they believe are simply not being heard the government says carry lamb the chief executive says she is listening she will rule differently here in this city people here is just simply don't believe if 2000000 people out on the streets does not move the government storming the mini parliament does not move the government then what will work so i think it is a pause for reflection their rise is another protest planned for this weekend a much smaller protest over on the cowling side of hong kong harbor we wait to see what the result of that is but just coming back to this memorial service the organizers of this memorial service and there will be a couple of other memorial services for 2 other protesters who whose deaths have been linked to the to the movement who took their own lives they have to be very careful about staging this they have to give people the opportunity to grieve to pay their respects at the same time they have to be careful that they they don't
4:09 pm
make a hero of the person or politicize it too much because the last thing anybody wants is somebody else to try to follow suit to treat them if you like as a martyr which would be more even more tragic than it already is and indeed for the moment we'll leave it there rob of course and continue to monitor events from hong kong thank you. sudan's opposition leaders of held a series of public meetings in the capital khartoum they want to explain why they signed a power sharing deal with the military jointer now under the agreement a council will be set up with the leadership changing from the military to civilians after 21 months while some protesters have welcomed the deal as a victory others see it as surrender. that remain doesn't deal with all the issues is but it deals with the level of the. and we have mentioned these levels the final. text is now being

a member of the same elite accused of corruption vote rigging and poor governance the problem is that there is a procedure laid down in the constitution the election should have been held yesterday but they weren't because of no suitable candidates and that means that the army guaranteeing the constitution and the protest as standard daggers drawn. 57 years after independence many algerian say they're still fighting for freedom they want to clean sweep of the political establishment and a national unity government to lead the transition to democracy victoria gate to be al jazeera. told from person to us what many are describing as a glaring historical error in his u.s. independence day speech while reciting highlights from america's war big trees the president seemed to suggest that george washington's forces seized airports during the country's revolution in the late 18th century that's more than
4:15 pm
a 100 years before a plane 1st successfully took off. in june of 1775 the continental congress created a unified army out of the revolutionary forces encamped around boston and new york and named after the great york washington commander in chief the continental army suffered a bitter winter of valley forge found glory across the waters of the delaware and seized victory from cornwallis of yorktown our army manned the air it read the ramparts it took over the airport it did everything it had to do. asked about it on friday present trying to blame the weather for playing havoc with technology. i stood in the rain the teleprompter went out so i. guess the teleprompter went out it kept going on and then to see as it went out what the book so i could have said and actually write in the middle of that says

one out as that's not a good feeling when you're standing in front of millions of millions of people on television. good medical care isn't just about prescribing the right treatment training center in new york is aiming to improve nursing students communication skills and it's christensen he reports little patience a human. out there now is wheezing and coughing his cheeks turning blue the symptoms of his asthma attack may be common but students at columbia university's school of nursing say treating them is far more challenging in a clinical environment than a classroom it's going to help open up your mind. well the textbook i think doesn't talk back to you so especially when you're dealing with pediatrics and a child that scared of something or doesn't want to do something or how is a state of the art medical training manikin who under the control of a nearby instructor talks and conveys emotions in addition to symptoms his body
4:17 pm
works with a broad range of patient monitors and sensors while robotics allow him to simulate nearly a dozen facial expressions fear anxiety and anger but i think that what some offers us is like the opportunity to really explore like that empathy component of health care and treating patients and people in their family as like not just like someone who hasn't asked asthma exacerbation. birthday one more time actors are also used in simulations here one place house father is just go to a small room and wages them when she comes there and don't be much of this kind of training used to take place on the job but as health care becomes more high tech so has the training of medical professionals. the simulation center has the look and feel of a real hospital with operating rooms and even a maternity ward the idea is to better prepare students for the real world so their
4:18 pm
patients will have better outcomes. students review their experiences afterwards in the board room studies show that simulation improves their critical thinking clinical judgment and communication skills with communication errors one of the leading causes of harmful mistakes in health care really shows the true aspect of what nurses do were not just the skills based profession but there's a lot of thinking clinical decision making involved which is why more training like this may be just what the doctor ordered kristen salumi al-jazeera new york. what you have is there with me it's all rather mind or top news stories the u.n. security council has condemned the attack on a migrant detention center in libya it's also calling on the warring sides to commit to a cease fire but it has emerged showing the moment the airstrikes hit the camp near

com iraq card is next with inside story and back in half an hour do stay with us. an iranian oil tanker is seized by british marines off gibraltar apparently on orders from the united states what's behind this dramatic move and how can you europe navigate the escalating tension between the u.s. and iran this is inside story.
4:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program on iran come on an iranian old time is that they center of a growing international dispute british marines boarded and detained the ship on thursday as it was sailing in. a british territory on spain's south coast the u.k. believes it was violating european union sanctions by carrying iranian oil to syria spain says it was the united states that ordered the vessel be stopped iran condemned what it called an illegal interception and summoned the british ambassador to tehran the u.s. and iran have been engaged in a war of words for months as washington precious tehran to renegotiate the 2015 nuclear deal this action the rose from information giving the gibraltar government reasonable grounds to believe that the vessel the grace one was acting in breach of european union sanctions against syria in fact we have reason to believe that the
4:23 pm
grace one was carrying its shipments of crude oil to the ban yes refinery in syria . that refinery is the property of an entity that is subject to european union sanctions against syria the u.s. national security advisor john bolton called their detention excellent news a former commander of iran's revolutionary guard is threatening retaliation saying if britain doesn't release the iranian oil tanker it is the author or is his duty to seize a british oil taga. i. let's bring in our panel joining us from tehran hassan medea an assistant professor of political science at the university of tehran in berlin early for the nature a visiting fellow at the brookings doha center and in washington d.c. jeff stacy a former u.s. state department official under president barack obama welcome to you all i like to begin in teheran 1st the brits have made their move the u.s.
4:24 pm
national security adviser john bolton seems to be positively giddy about the whole thing calling it excellent news what does tehran do next. of course tehran see it in line with the recent you know act trends that have been taken by the brits whether guards to iran and the j.c.b. or a. for instance and for your answer the brits came out of it with out and in. suggesting that iran was behind it while the u.a.e. itself said there is no you know any think that links iran to be incident on other issues that the downing of the u.s. spy jet or a spy drone the brits also endorsed the. u.s. you know rhetoric and narrative a bit and i think basically in recent months london has been you know reflecting
4:25 pm
whatever the white house had to say this incident i think is in line with that shift in. london's you know policy of the regards to iran because up until now ever since the sanctions have been in place the e.u. sanctions on syria there there hasn't been any incident but now so the iranians basically the general mood here is that the brits are doing what the united states wants and it's in line with their policy of bandwagon with the united states against iran but you know you heard sending the jury illusory against e.u. sanctions you're not supposed to do that. that's of course that's either use sanctions not iran sanctions they the e.u. is now or the britain the brits are doing what the united states the trump
4:26 pm
administration has been doing that the administration has been imposing unilateral sanctions and penalize you know pressurizing others to abide by them the e.u. is imposing sanctions and you know. forcing other or trying to force others to abide by them which is it self the e.u. and clued in the brits have been criticizing the united states for let's bring in washington d.c. here and stacey jeff you worked on the original j c p o a deal you know a lot of the players involved this deal has now almost completely broken down is there any way back for the u.s. on this is any way back for iran on this do you see this as being a a moment where there's an opportunity or a view given up on this deal ever being same through again. we're not fully given up on the deal and the europeans aren't although this is certainly
4:27 pm
a signal to the iranians that they probably are and so we've got all sorts of perception problems here and the likelihood is that the deal in terms of iran's adherence to it on the in richmond levels and these sorts of things they'll probably push the end even more file a few more provisions but the real concern is what's going to happen right in the region with the different. capacities and pieces of military equipment that are in place we're probably going to see now another move by iran to lash out and target someone either directly or with its subsidiaries in the region such as the who teaser others and that's where the real danger is here that the red line that this administration has out there could be moved right across and then an exchange takes place and then a rapid escalation that's the real danger here where more and more boxed in so the
4:28 pm
agreements that's not really the greatest concern here that can be gotten back in line with relatively quickly the real problem with the military assets in the region and how close to each other they are and the difficulty now in terms of any kind of military exchange targeting of another piece of either u.s. or allied military forces that is the real issue at this stage it is a very serious issue but you this administration they did put those military assets that the iranians were sticking to the deal according to your own sources near the white house itself under president obama they were very happy that with the way the iranians are sticking to the deal then this administration changes everything and suddenly we have those assets in the region this is warmongering classical monroe. sholay it is i mean the drug administration is guilty of starting this entire crisis so there's that fault and there's plenty of it lying around the difficulty
4:29 pm
now is that the europeans do not want this deal violated and the iranians are pushing the ante here by essentially aligning the europeans with the americans because they're really out of moods everyone is boxed in here the us is boxed in iran is boxed in that's why the danger level is going up and the tensions are going up the sources of this quite rightly are entirely the fault of the us but now we're in a really dangerous situation right there in the gulf with these assets and that is the problem there red lines on both sides we need to get back to discussions and obviously sanctions lifted and moving to a new deal except rick cetera let's bring in the 5000 as i said who's a visiting fellow at the brookings doha center he's actually and then right now do you see a way out of this of both sides is there something is there
4:30 pm
a way of backing down. well and the interest situation is very difficult and so there is not. i mean the only way out would be that both tehran and washington become more flexible so that for example washington announces that to iran beyond you know the signal that they're actually willing to talk without preconditions as president trump recently said to signal to iran that they would be willing to stop some of the sanctions and this would send a positive signal to iran and maybe give them some courage to enter into negotiations because so the iranian perspective for the last few months was that they were in a position of weakness and there is no. there is no reason to engage in talks with the united states or the debate has much more multifaceted in toronto surely but
4:31 pm
for now we don't have the green light from the supreme leader of iran which is an absolute necessity so we see at least rhetorically finale more willingness to talk from the american side than from the iranian side but bees as it may we might say a different dynamic if iran decides to go beyond to go to move towards 20 percent of low enriched uranium in the next few days and this my create a new dynamic inside of which the europeans will find it very difficult to continue the kind of political and diplomatic support to iran so all of this kind of. play of brinkmanship from the u.s. and iranian side of the last few weeks and months is now entering a critical stage let me bring in her son here in tehran you heard what our guest in berlin had to say is that a way for the iranians to come back to the negotiating table and turn this around
4:32 pm
or is it simply too late. i think iranians have never left the negotiation table they have been there it's the united states that a got out of the know from the negotiating table and try to bring iran on its own terms to another negotiating tables so this is clear the united states violated the deal then imposed the sanctions that were lifted as part of the deal and then forced others to you know abide by those sanctions and now is in a ratcheting up the pressure the maximum pressure and i'm in the the point that your guest from washington brought up that everybody's boxed in i think that's correct but the party that is suffering is iran it's not the e.u. it's not the united states so iran sees. the way that the e.u.
4:33 pm
is dealing with u.s. sanctions as. as a violation of it of its own commitment within the deal so it's basically it's not working against the e.u. it's basically doing what the e.u. and the united states is doing that they basically got back from their commitments they got back to the 1st square where the negotiations started and led to the j.c. a and iran basically is i think is heading back as well to the 1st where to be equal i mean to deal with them on equal footing and i think that's that's a choice that has been made into iran iranians cannot basically the authorities here the ruling elites cannot you know afford to basically woo back and kneel be behind before us maximum pressure they have to create a leverage as to go to and if they are to go to another round of discussions or
4:34 pm
negotiations provided that there will be a willing mess on the other. partly but i think what's important for iran now is the economics of the u.s. sanctions and they are not doing basically it's part of the deal. and is right. rationally so iran is you know pressurizing the e.u. and the other parties to the deal to live up to their own commitments within the deal that's actually very interesting question let me bring in a lethal and in berlin it's not actually illegal to transport iranian all around the world owes a unilateral sanctions being placed on. by the u.s. on iran so it's actually quite legal to transport oil around the world it's much more difficult to sell it in iran does need money now because it's being squeezed so much do you feel that the iranians are now absolutely desperate to get hold of cash and that's why they took such a risky move allegedly by trying to get this all to syria or do you think this is
4:35 pm
just been happening for a long time. well i mean 1st of all. the iranian oil shipment where it's syria i'm not sure if in return the iranians would get back cash from the assad regime so basically what was happening during the last few years is that basically iran was providing a lot of material and other help to the assad regime and not really under turn for money and for cash i mean so this is not the issue. i think the timing of this incident is very interesting because it comes after the european union has announced that a special purpose vehicle which is about a mechanism set up by the european union called instax is going to be operational. and this would of course not be substantive because as it is it stands now. through the instax actually not really massive and significant transactions can be made between europe in iran but at least symbolically this you move is
4:36 pm
is a signal to washington that the u.s. actually circumventing u.s. sanctions. and so when so this is incident in juba tahrir was. the be asked of the americans and precisely at a time as well when the acting foreign minister of spain missed the boat ireland is poised to become the next e.u. foreign policy chief did this put some of the bar also in a very difficult situation talking about infringement possible infringement of sovereignty of spain by britain on it so if this is a calculated move by the united states to do this at this particular timing this is also a way to drive a wedge among the europeans in this critical juncture. but as such the incident is not that significant it is only significant because it comes within
4:37 pm
a context of escalating tensions between the 2 sides let's bring in washington d.c. had the european union has played a negotiating role between the u.s. and iran in the past it has been part of the a talks it has the iranians have felt for a very long time that they did have friends within the european union that they could talk talk to and they could lean on in times of toughness in the last few months what we've seen though is the e.u. not really acting the way it said it would act when it came to the iranians and this deal how much of that is to do as our guest in tehran says is just pandering to washington. well there's a bit of that but the most important thing here is that the europeans can do something beyond just enforcing or not invoicing saying sions including related to this tinker's seizure what they should do in particular france in a menu mccrone is step in and mediate the japanese prime minister avi tried to do
4:38 pm
this but it was at a time where there was no real off ramp for the iranians and so it wasn't really. appropriate in terms of the sequencing but there is now an opportunity right when everyone is boxed in with very few moves to make to save face as it were it's time for france to come in especially because they're not doing what they should be doing over in libya with the support of general haftar there's a grand opportunity here for france and the rest of the e.u. to come in and broker a new deal remember trump has really only opposing this bit because of domestic considerations because this had to do with president obama he'll sign something as he's done with a trade deal that looks relatively similar to the previous deal so iran can think about that take that i'm bored strategically with the push from the europeans as a real opportunity to get a some couple of small sanctions relieved get back to the table iran can think creatively about what else it could offer so this deal looks just somewhat
4:39 pm
different and we can get back to adherents to it and moving forward into the next chapter of this war in the 3rd phase of this crisis we need to move to the 4th phase where the tensions actually start to come down and they're back at the negotiating table housen in teheran it's an interesting point isn't it surely one with talking about what president donald trump wants is not the j.c. pioli effect if you wants the t.c.p. oh if he wants the trump card brands and plan of action why don't you just give it to him. well i think. to begin with iran was not happy with the j.c. in the 1st place both parties came down from you know from there are demands ideal deal that they had in mind and got to bed and now you have the united states reneging on the same deal that iran was not happy with asking it to step even back even further so. basically the question here in tehran is that
4:40 pm
what should we are for now i'm in the entire nuclear file to the united states iran's in no leverage in the in the region that is basically and very effective the you know is used as a deterrent means or iran's ballistic missiles that the only basic you know defense means that iran has these are the questions what what can we offer to tromp and if it's not j.c. if you know it's the c.p.u. it would be of course different from the j.c. and iranians were not happy with the j.c. surely they want to be with another version of it that the trumpet ministration can sell within the united states so iran's choice is not and i think the other question is who can we trust in the united states and i mean that the administration while a bit of a deal that is
4:41 pm
a part of international law if it has been endorsed by the u.n. security council that that administration could not be trusted that's the essence of many of the arguments that has been made here into her and i think there's a as much as there was a consensus to go with for a deal with obama administration and the previous administration there is a consensus here nowadays it is felt. in the in the decision making and circles and elites that we shouldn't do that with the trump illustration at least not for now let me bring in ali in berlin here you've heard what both i guess about to say they stated their positions very clearly there doesn't seem to be any common ground right now will there be any common ground under a president like donald trump. well let me start by saying that it is true that
4:42 pm
last year the crisis was kicked off after the trump administration unilaterally basically violated the nuclear deal all the iran was sticking to its side of the commitments with the iranian strategy ever since this kind of strategic patience has not been successful it has been basically to bank upon the europeans to help them out to be to provide them with the economic benefits of the deal but giving the power consolation in the international order where the united states is still the predominant power in the international financial banking system the sanctions are imposed on iran have been much more forceful than a lot of observers have been. have been thinking that they might be and so the other part of the iranian strategy is by doing so they would be able to drive a wedge between the europeans and the americans but the reality remains that the europeans will not be able to provide iran with the economic benefits of the deal
4:43 pm
as long as u.s. sanctions are still in place so at the end of the day so europe is basically out of the picture it's basically down to iran and the united states to sit down and talk despite. aspects of the legality and illegality that my colleague from tehran mentioned this is how the situation is and. that the iranians have been quite successful during the past few weeks and months to show not only to the united states but also to. iran allies of the united states in the region that the costs of a military confrontation with iran would be very very high and on the other side also the trump himself you know seems not to be interested in a large scale military confrontation and then just a story already out of korea israel running out as i want to bring in jeff stacy in washington d.c. where should the iranians simply wait out president of the trump. no they shouldn't

actually in the so the attacks especially most recently on one of the saudi airports you know killed some civilians so there are some things like that that could be added to the deal that would make the entire region more secure and more peaceful and what we want to get back to is an iran that is as normal relations with the world and everyone with it economically viable again and moving away from pushing confrontation around the region and to a new era really and this ironically could even happen during the trumpet ministration would just need to dress up the discussions and the provisions of a new deal slightly differently it's not as difficult as everyone seems to believe it is gentlemen we are out of time i want to thank you all has an idea and for that measure head and jeff stacey and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website out is there

a rational and gradual pace but also jabari has more from tehran. spent a very very tense time here over the past few weeks this deadline is fast approaching 24 hours ago and the iranians have already said that they are going to increase their level of enrichment uranium enrichment they are currently at 3.67 percent that is the agreement under the nuclear deal of 2015 but they will move that up tomorrow to what level we don't know. more from the supreme leader senior advisor. he said for example we could increase the level of enrich uranium to 5 percent because the share a power plant needs the 5 percent enriched uranium to fuel it took for it to produce electricity for the country this was just an example that was given as to why that level might go up now all this is being done because the iranians feel that the european signatories of the nuclear deal have not upheld there and that

of sunday and it was clearly felt that that wasn't enough time to get to the bottom of it and so they've successfully applied for a 14 day extension so that ship is going nowhere and i spoke on friday to a specialist in the sanctions law who said that the actual process could take very much longer than that i predict a very long long. investigation and if any criminal proceedings follow likely it takes some time because i fully expected iranian authorities to bring a legal challenge as a real war of words frankly is developing over the fate of this ship grace one we know that the iranians were extremely critical and are demanding the return of that cargo the gibraltar nds are also rather bristling at the suggestion from spain that they were acting simply at the behest of the united states but other countries
